Battle Ground WA Real Estate Another Improved Month of Home Sales

Home Sales volume improved again in Battle Ground, with the third straight month of sales gains...

Earlier this month we checked in with the Battle Ground MLS to see what happened with the real estate statistics and trends within the confines of the Battle Ground zip code 98604, for April. Here is the breakdown by Active | Pending | Sold; and further broken down by 3rd Party/Pre-Foreclosure | Foreclosures:

From this quick view we see an increase of 8 units for Pending Sales, and a Decrease in the heavily weighted proportion of distressed properties. This month the 3rd Party + Pre-Foreclosures + Foreclosures combined are about 29.8% of the Active homes listed (33.0% last month), and they represent about 47.7% of the homes going under contract (61.1% last month).

The table below is from the RMLS, showing the past 3 months of activity (you may right-click on the image

Market Statistics and Trends for Battle Ground April 2011

The Key items we are looking for in a market turnaround are not just an increase in the number of transactions but, a decrease in the non-Pre-Foreclosure / Foreclosure Sold category. In our opinion that ratio has started to show measured improvement in April, and if the relative price-strength remains, there is a good environment for recovery.

Clearly Battle Ground home sales prices been within a rather narrow range for the past 9 months -- which may be a positive sign of Base Building.
